I thought I'd share a picture of the bow loop dryer DH made me awhile back. After finding dowels with drying loops propped up all over the house (and rolling off onto the floor), he made me this dowel holder out of pvc pipe. It's notched for a 1" dowel, but will hold smaller widths also and holds enough loops for a big bow and extras in case of breakage. Very sturdy and doesn't knock over easily!
Gotta love DH!! icon_smile.gif
Thanks for looking!

I do that but hang the pvc between two dining room chairs (the backs of my chairs have rails). I have found that it helps to dust the pvc with cornstarch, as sometimes the fondant/gp wants to stick to it. icon_smile.gif

Seriously, have you silly girls never played with PVC pipe before? OMG, you can create all kinds of drying racks...for bow loops, sugar flowers, whatever. You just buy yourself some 1" PVC pipe, 1" elbow or 3-way connectors, and a PVC pipe cutter (if you don't have a bandsaw or manual saw to use to cut it). Just don't use PVC glue so you can take apart your creations and make new ones as your needs require.

PVC pipe is your friend!! icon_biggrin.gif
